Two years after season five of Offspring signed off our TV screens, sources have confirmed that a sixth season of the hugely popular show is tipped for a return to production.
The Ten Network has kept quiet on the news, but sources say that as soon as star Asher Keddie is ready to return to work, production will start.
The reason filming of the show stopped was because it had passed its 65th episode, which meant Government tax rebates ceased.
Any future series of Offspring would likely cost 30 per cent more to produce, however Ten’s chief programming officer Beverley McGarvey has previously said she didn’t see that as a hurdle.
“It is certainly our intention to make that series last as long as possible and as long as people want to keep watching it. It was such a powerful end to last season but the team has done a great job of … getting back to the heart and the humour of the show.”
